It seems that the former Glee actress is making a fresh start following her split from Matthew Paetz earlier this year. Not only has she been spotted heading to the studio to record new music, but Lea is said to have started dating fellow actor Robert Buckley, best known for his roles in One Tree Hill and iZombie.

The new couple are believed to have met through mutual friends and were recently spotted looking close on a dinner date in Santa Monica, California.

"They were sitting in the bar all cuddly. He pushed her chair in for her and everything," an eyewitness told Us Weekly.

Another source said: "They were interlocked the whole time they were sitting at the counter, like arms wrapped around each other's backs. At one point… they had either just kissed or were super close talking."

Lea's new relationship comes almost three months after her split with Matthew, whom she dated for nearly two years. The male model was reportedly the one to initiate the break-up, leaving the brunette beauty "crushed".
